Diner Reviews
  • "Very nice hidden gem in a strip mall. Higher end dining. The food was fabulous loved almost everything. Except the Nutella cheesecake-skip it. The service was probably akin to a bad local diner. For the prices your paying you want to not have to wait for menus, drinks, and set ups. Once our order was taken the food came quickly, and the staff was not rude, just not attentive. I am a pretty easy going dinner, but waiting for a menu for 15 minutes or more is inexcusable. I would give it go a gain if I travel that way, and I would recommend that you go for the food. Hopefully the service was a fluke :)"

  • "Excellent food. My favorite restaurant in Southern California for pasta. I ordered the Capellini Pomodoro and had them add a few shrimp to the dish. Both the shrimp and pasta were excellent, a very fresh, light and flavorful dish. Over the years I have dined here many times and they always seem willing to accommodate special requests. My guest ordered the Sand Dabs which were also excellent. A wonderful neighborhood restaurant for either lunch or dinner."

  • "Aliotta's Via Firenze reminded me of N.Y. Italian. These folks take food seriously and did a wonderful job. The fettucine Alfredo was nicely prepared. The Ahi tuna was just amazing. Great mix of spices and nice fresh Ahi. The wine pairing really made it a special night. I live close and I'm already looking forward to my next visit. Oh, they did miss the mark on dessert with a chocolate filled Ravioli shell...it was just o.k.. However, my cheesecake was right one the money."

  • "Always a great experience. Took a good friend there for his birthday and he was very impressed. Terrific service, the food was amazing and the atmosphere was comfortable and inviting. The owner takes special interest and seems to visit every table to assure the customers are satisfied. I would highly recommend Aliotta's Via Firenze. You will not be disappointed."

  • "I've been to Aliotta's at least five times in the past year and a half and never have been disappointed. The service is attentive but not instrusive, and all of the staff are warm and friendly. The owner greeted us at the door and came by the table several times to chat briefly. It seems to be a place where locals, family, and close friends of the owner stop to eat, because there were lots of smiles of recognition, hugs, and swapping of stories among the staff and some guests. The food is ample but not excessive, and all of the dishes I've tried have been very good. They're not over-the-top, magazine-cover fancy, but that also means they're not "fussy" dishes that look over-assembled. Just excellent food in an inviting atmosphere."

  • "The look of the restaurant inside is nice, cozy and intimate, but the good comments end there. The caprese rustica was very bland and the tomatoes were not very ripe. I've had MUCH better in chain type restaurants. The main course was very bland as well, I had to put so much salt to give it some taste. The worst part was that the side of steamed vegetables was COLD! yes, not even warm on some of the broccoli. The last complaint was that it was TOO EXPENSIVE for the quality. Dinner for 2 without ANY drinks (just water) was almost $90!! Will most likely never go back. Sadly disappointed, I love hole in the wall neighborhood restaurants, but this is one was not good."

  • "This was an incredible Italian restaurant with scrumptious food and impeccable service. We were greeted by the owner, Michael, as we walked in who later came to check on us to find out how we were enjoying our meal. I had the linguine w/scallops and saffron sauce; my boyfriend had a special of tri-colore pasta w/shrimp and calamari. When we were at the end of our meal, Michael came back by and we asked to have a taxi called so we could return to our hotel since we were on vacation. Michael, insisted we allow him to take us back. We were in awe by such a incredible and altruist act of kindness. Thank you Michael, your kindness will never be forgotten. The food was fabulous and we will definitely return."

  • "Bad service and food was overpriced for what I got. The restaurant was empty, only few people were dining there. Not ""OPENTABLE quality" restaurant."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Very good service. Portabello mushroom with shrimp appetizer is not on the menu but it is why I go to Aliotta's. The fried calamari was cooked perfectly and both came out really fast! Yummy bread. The lasagne was OK but all the other entrees we ordered were delicious."

  • "Upon arriving, our reservations made didn't seem to matter. We still waited for a table to be open. For the remarks portion through open table, everytime we put that we were celebrating our anniversary the tables we got were set up to make the occasion more sweeter. We were just another couple here. Food wise is excellent! We had a filling portion of veal, pasta, scallops, and shrimp. Desert is also a must and delicious. The servers were also friendly except there is an unusual wait time for them to come to you. We sat for over 10 mins waiting to order and probably 15 mins to get the check. Hence the 4 stars. I would go back again just to try other dishes."

  • "I love this place the best service and food in south bay, Owner meets you as you enter and come to your table to confirm that everything is going good, service does not stop during your whole meals as server is there to refill water and/or wine glass all the time."

  • "We were greeted warmly and the place had a welcoming feel. Great wine list, we had the house Chianti and found it to be very good. We were a little underwhelmed with our meals but the menu had great choices and we will defintely go back to try something different. Frow what we could tell, everything is made fresh so I am sure some items will be very good."

  • "Absolutely fabulous menu - plenty of choices for everyone. I wish we had one of these in Long Beach but it's worth the drive to Torrance."

  • "I was a bit skeptical about trying a new Italian restaurant but I'm glad I did. First of, the service was amazing! They make you feel welcomed, at home and like as if you are important and they've known you forever. The place feels romantic and like as if you are dining in Italy. The menu, wow! So much to choose from. I must admit, it was a tad bit too salty for me, I still every much enjoyed it. Can't wait to go back! Definitely having my birthday dinner here!"

  • "The first thing you'll notice is that the owner is very friendly in the usual European manner. He'll talk with you as much or as little as you like. Their complimentary bread is crispy and the oil and balsamic vinegar are high quality. The entrees are served in large plates with generous portions. If you order a seafood dish, you can expect fresh seafood that is tender and not overcooked. While the establishment is unassuming on the outside, the inside is beautifully decorated and good for a special occasion. The only thing I was unhappy about was that they disrupted our meal by reaching across the table and removing things that they didn't have to. Be sure to examine their candles."

  • "Since they have such a large menu I thought I’d try something different. I went with the Etruscan - veal scaloppini and jumbo shrimp with artichokes and vegetables. It was an excellent choice. The veal was tender and delicious."

  • "We've been going to Aliotta's since we moved to California. Every single time is the best authentic Italian meal I've ever had! The pasta's are great and they will make you anything you can think of, even if its not on the menu. I always have the veal, which is amazing. I haven't enjoyed food this much since my trips to Italy. I highly recommend Aliotta's, you'll enjoy it."

Mike the owner treats everyone like family and he is always keeping an eye out to make sure everything goes well. He is a very involved owner. If you are lucky enough to get our favorite waiter (Manny) you are in for a wonderful experience."

  • "The vino is good - tried a sangiovese this time excellent. The calamari was tender. For the main course I had Scallops Don Mike, very tasty. And of course had to try a cannoli. I've been here several times the staff is always polite and helpful. An exellent place to go for a small intimate dinner or a large group. Enjoy"
